Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

I have a confession to make. I love PETA. I disagree with some of their campaigns and their incessant harassment of the Olsen twins, but they hardly ever fail to amuse with their marketing campaigns. Kentucky Fried Cruelty? The Unhappy Meal? Ha! PETA’s latest campaign is pretty chuckle-tastic, too. They’ve requested that the Iowa State… READ MORE »

Remember that abortion party we told you about? The general reaction to that little shindig was, um, “Appalled!” But, as I’ve never heard of one before, I don’t think it’s an indication of a trend. However, one aspect to the story did inspire another conversation about how much say a man should have in a… READ MORE »

Who knew a pubic wig could be so chic? Thanks to Trend de la Creme for pointing out the merkin’s influence on high-fashion, with pubic shaped cutouts and panels showing up on designs from Kostas Murkudis and Alexandre Herchcovitch. I’ve yet to see one of these… READ MORE »

One of my favorite summer shows is “So You Think You Can Dance.” Similar in structure to “American Idol” (only it’s a competition for, duh, dancers not singers), the talent is consistently a-mazing. This season’s crop of dancers are no different. On last night’s episode, season 2 runner-up, Travis Wall, choreographed this glorious… READ MORE »

Famous people say the darnedest things. Sometimes their gibberish is bizarre, sometimes it’s overwhelming, and often it’s just plain dumb. This week, Jada Pinkett Smith took the cake by regaling us with tales of rugged public sex with her hubby, Will Smith. We fondly look back at some of the awesomest things she’s said in… READ MORE »

I think Wednesday is my favorite day of the week, ’cause once it’s over, it’s almost Friday, kinda. It’s also a great day because tabloids remind me that no matter how bad my life can be, at least no one cares about the trouble I’ve been getting into—unlike Jennifer, Jessica, and (Michael) Jackson. And they’re… READ MORE »

Aubree O’Day is the latest celebrity to get a crappy tattoo in a dumb place on her body — she posted these photos on her Twitter which show her getting “Je ne sais quoi” inked on her middle finger. That means “I know not what” in French. I know not what to say about this… READ MORE »

One of Britain’s most celebrated music conductors, Sir Edward Downes, died last week at the age of 85, along with his wife Joan, 74. How? They drank “a lethal cocktail of barbiturates provided by an assisted-suicide clinic” in Zurich, Switzerland. Lady Joan Downes was in the final stages of terminal cancer, but Sir Downes was… READ MORE »

When you think of environmental consciousness, your probably flashes to organic-food eating, composting, solar-energy-loving people. Not whore houses. But a Berlin brothel owner is hoping to make an impact by offering a $7 discount (off the $100 for a 45-minute session) for patrons that arrive on bicycles. Since 2002, Germany has given legit labor contracts… READ MORE »

Funny Or Die, who manages to get every celebrity you can think of to star in their spoofs, has reminded me of just how adorable and funny Alicia Silverstone is, with this spoof of indie road trip flicks. Says Kelly Draper from LA Weekly, “Someone dies and there’s a LOT of music. Much… READ MORE »
